Bayonetta 2 coming to Wii U this October, includes original Bayonetta

Platinum Games' witch 'em up action game Bayonetta 2 will come to Wii U this October, Nintendo announced today during its E3 digital event.

In addition to a more firm release window for the game, Nintendo also revealed that the original Bayonetta will be included as part of the package. The first Bayonetta was released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2009.

Nintendo is sweetening the Bayonetta package by adding a few console-exclusive costumes. Players will be able to dress the eponymous witch up like Princess Peach, Link from The Legend of Zelda or Samus Aran from Metroid in the Wii U port of Bayonetta. Some of her hair-based attacks will include Nintendo-themed variations. She'll be able to summon Bowser's foot through a portal, for example.

Bayonetta 2 was announced as a Wii U exclusive by Nintendo in 2012.
